    Educate me on 300 engines

    I currently have a GTR which has been great, but looking at something newer. Was leaning towards the 2017 RXT 260 because of the color and the ability to add the SCOM, but there are none for sale. So wondering if I should be looking at the 2016+ skis with the 300 engine. Which ones should I stay away from? Saw a 2016 GTX 300 Limited that might work.

    All year 300s are reliable and fast but pigs on gas when ridden hard. Gotta pay to play as they say. A SCOM on a 300 is good for 5-6mph on top end whereas with the 260 only 2-3mph.

    The additional torque of the 300 really adds to the fun factor over the 260. There is more to it than just the HP rating.

    Heard that the early model 300's had the fly wheel bolt issues. Was told these issues were fixed with a better bolt starting on the 18's.

    Yes, but’s only an issue if you increase the rpm limit.
    Search around here. Pictures have been posted before.
